Each person sees through eyes
that know there is a world which is more stable, more concrete,
one in which the air is not so thick, a world that is gentler
with its time, patience, and movement. But the eight people in
this film, eight of the 5.3 million living with brain injury
in the U.S., do no live in that world. They live in a world that
is random and, often, unforgiving. A world where the sidewalk
moves and colors dance. A world where light is not from the grace
above but a painful reminder that they have forgotten their sunglasses.
A world where a grocery store is hell. But. Their world also
carries a reborn heaven in each breath. It's simplicity is the
greatest gift given to them: the sunset, a jog in the hill, cool
air, homemade soup, a fire, their lover's hands on their neck.
The quiet of mid-day alone.
This is the world of brain injury.
And every twenty-one seconds
another person joins them ...
